William Merricle


The god of similes is the last 
to leave the earth 
only because 
he’s such a lazy bastard. 
Each Argonaut eventually 
consents to electroshock therapy. 
Adam forms 
the shed snakeskin 
into a masturbation sleeve. 
Prolonged contact with 
my body may cause you to 
flip me off. 
My love is like a 
deep-fried Snickers. 
Blood drips onto the 
velvet turquoise couch. 
The law is the law. 
Everyone has a skeleton 
in their heart.
